It is appreciated if you bring your Gamecube, Copy of Super Smash Bros. Melee Game, extra controllers, memory card, and if possible (and very helpful) to bring a TV. However, it is mandatory that you bring a Gamecube controller for yourself. This is open to anyone 12 year of age or older or in grades 6 and up. This is a Teen program so anyone not meeting those requirements is not able to play*.
